    Weekly Wednesday Poll - 13

    September 28, 2011 by Kastera1000

    In last weeks poll, 31% of voters claimed to be Jacks of All Trades, 21% favored themselves as snipers and 15% believed themselves to be a Military strategist. Only 14% of people would talk there way out, 10% would go in guns blazing and 9% of people would sneaky, sneaky away.

    In this weeks poll, I'd like to ask what you think the prominent danger is in any wasteland, not necessarily the Core, Texan, Capital, or Mojave; just in general.

    Weekly Wednesday Poll - 12

    September 21, 2011 by Kastera1000

    In last weeks poll, rifles pulled into the lead with 54% of all votes, followed by shotguns with 18% and then pistols by a hair with 17%. SMG's got 6% and THE BIG GUN got only 5%.

    Now that we know your favored selection of firearm, we can ask how you solve a potentially dangerous situation. Do you Run 'n' Gun, busting through the doors guns blazing disregarding anything or anybody in the room? Or are you Sneak, sneaky, just avoiding the situation altogether? Are you a diplomat, talking people out of the conflict? Or are you a Military strategist, thinking about the best way to subdue the conflict whether it means luring them into a trap or just hitting them where they're weak. Or would rather be the Sniper and kill them long before they even see you? Maybe you're a Jack of all Trades, rotating through these roles. Tell me.

    Weekly Wednesday Poll - 11

    September 14, 2011 by Kastera1000

    Last weeks poll concerning think tanks seemed to excite The Vault, so I can assume the idea wasn't as bad as I thought. Dr. Mobius came in first, with 36% of the votes, Dr. 0 got 21% and Dr. Dala. I thought this was amusing: Dr. 8 humorously got 8% of the votes!

    This weeks poll is unintentionally a follow-up to Crazy sam's Sunday poll on energy weapons. I've been planning on doing this poll for a while now but now it seems to slide right into Crazy sam's poll.

    Last week's poll of favorite radio stations were pretty one sided. It seemed everyone loved GNR with it getting 81% of the votes. Agatha and the Enclave were neck-and-neck, but the Enclave prevailed with 11% of the votes, and Agatha with 8%. As for the Fallout: New Vegas radio stations, it had a nice exponential curve to it, with Radio New Vegas getting 54%, the Mysterious broadcast getting 27% and Mojave Music Radio getting 19%.

    This week's poll is rather simple; I have not had the time to think of an overly complex and fun one.

    Last week was a follow-up to Crazy Sam's main vanilla game antagonists. Lord Ashur looked promising in the beginning, but Elijah steadily prevailed over him. Elijah was first with 40% of the votes, Dr. Mobius was next with 21% of the votes and finally, Lord Ashur with 16% of the votes. All the other antagonists didn't get above 10%. How sad.

    It seems like I've been give you a lot of double-whammies in the past few weeks, but here comes another one. This time I'm asking which radio station you listen to most prominently. How do you give yourself that little bit of companionship when you sit alone out in the wastes? How do you ward off sadness by use of auditory stimuli?

    Last week we had an interesting poll. First of all it was not me, but rather Ausir who took over the poll, so let's all thank him for that. Second, it asked what creatures from Fallout's past we would like to see in the future. 36% wanna mingo, a 15% tied between Floater and Chameleon deathclaw, and third place went to Komodo dragon with 10% of the votes.

    Last Sunday, Crazy sam asked you what your favorite vanilla antagonist and mentioned I would be doing add-on antagonists, so without further adieu, here you go:

    Poll:Who is your favorite add-on antagonist? Note: I accidentally added a question mark on the original poll. That's why there are two question marks; I'm not overly excited about asking your favorite add-on antagonist.

    Weekly Wednesday Poll - 07

    August 17, 2011 by Ausir

    Last week we had not just one, but two polls on player housing. In Fallout 3, it looks like the most popular choice is the Megaton house (78%), followed by the Tenpenny Tower suite (12%). The other 10% use incidental housing. In case of Fallout: New Vegas, there are more contenders. The first one, surprisingly, is one added in Old World Blues - The Sink (44%), followed by the Lucky 38 presidential suite (27%) and the Dino Dee-lite motel room (13%). Abandoned Brotherhood of Steel bunker received 3% of the votes, other Stip casino rooms got 1% and incidental housing 12%. No one chose the Ranger station in Zion Canyon.

    This week's poll is about creatures from older Fallout games that we haven't yet seen return in Fallout 3 nor Fallout: New Vegas. Which one of these would you like to see again in the next Fallout game?

    Back in June, Bethesda Softworks was hacked by the infamous group called LulzSec. While back then Bethesda's Matt Grandstaff stated "These attacks will be evaluated to determine if there are any additional protections we might take that would be prudent", unfortuantely these additional protections were not enough to prevent another attack.

    Bethesda forum users have received the following e-mail (if you are a registered user and you haven't, check your spam box):

    Wiki news digest 2011-12

    August 13, 2011 by Ausir

    Here's another summary of what's going on at The Vault and Wikia.

    Two wikis have requested official The Vault sister wiki status. You can find the requests and vote on them in our forum:

    • Sister Wiki request - The Wasteland Survival Guide
    • Sister Wiki request - The Vault Armory

    It has been proposed that a "moderator" group be formalized as a Vault user rank below that of administrator, which would possess both "rollback" and "chat moderator" rights, both of which at the moment do not have formalized request criteria.

    After a trial period and a vote, we have decided to permanently enable the Chat feature. Join the conversation there!

    Several permanent chat moderators have also been elected:

    • Scarface11235
    • BillyOcean
    • PipMan
    • Yes-Man
    • ButterflyKiss

    Congratulations and good luck!

    In the days after the release of Old World Blues, The Vault's viewership went up to 3.5 million daily page views on Wednesday, July 20. It might not be that much compared to our record (up to 8.8 daily page views on the weekend aft…
